These Apricot Bites are a real hit with little ones, but make the ideal healthy lunchbox snack! You have the ability to make them into all shapes and sizes and are a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen as they are so simple to make.

Tip: You want to get real Organic Apricots from your health shop. These tend to be a more darker brown colour and not the bright orange that we are used to seeing in the supermarket. This bright orange colour is due to the Sulphur dioxide (Additive 220) that is in them to preserve the growth of bacteria and other nasties.

Sulphur Dioxide (Additive 220) can be fatal to asthmatics.
